The iconic Armstrong/Pirelli building, designed by Marcel Breuer in 1968–70, sits adjacent to Interstate 95 and serves as a dramatic gateway to the city of New Haven, Connecticut. Over the course of 2017, artist Tom Burr — a native of New Haven — will work on the ground floor of the building, creating a series of site-specific artworks in an evolving exhibition. This endeavor represents a continuation of Burr’s reflections on site, subjectivities, and the eroded distinction between private and public spheres.
